Associating a document template

The Newmenu in a library lets you create documents using the standard inbuilt document types:

Clicking any of these document types will result in a blank document being created for you. There are times, however, when you would want your users to create documents using standard document templates defined by your organization. These templates might contain pre-defined branding, standard cover pages, footers, and headers as an example. You can modify theNewmenu to enable document creation using such templates and also optionally hide the default templates.

This recipe will show you how to associate such a pre-created document template with the New menu in your library. We will also see how to show this template at the top and then disable the inbuilt Word document option.

Getting ready

You will need the Edit permission or higher to be able to edit the New menu for a library.
